About ICSW

Established in 1981, The Institute for Clinical Social Work (ICSW) is the first and only accredited, independent school in the nation to offer a doctoral program in clinical social work. Today we advance this mission with a combination of Master’s and Doctoral programs: our Master’s Degree in Clinical Counseling and Psychotherapy is the only purely clinical MA program in the nation; and our acclaimed Doctoral program, with both Onsite and Distance Learning options, offers a way to explore psychodynamic psychotherapy in true depth, deepening students’ current psychotherapy skills.
